    Add-on (XF1.5) RFP: Custom add-on to let users move threads to another forum

    We have a read-only news forum where XF's RSS feeder pulls in news items. I'm looking for an easy, essentially one click way for users to: click on a link or button inside the thread (in the post is fine as each thread will only have one post - the news item) select from a list of pre-defined...

    XF 1.5 Installed add-on, crashed site & database server... How to remove?

    I made the mistake of installing an add-on before making a backup (SMH) and it took the entire site and database server down. Obviously I can't get into XF admin so what is the best way to remove the add-on? I can FTP in and remove it but not sure it if would leave a mess? Appreciate any...

    Add-on (XF1.5) RFP: Need add-on to truncate incoming RSS feed

    ...via Registered Feeds. I'd like to be able to set a value in Registered Feeds options to limit the size of the content pulled in so as to avoid copyright issues because some feeds are full feeds. To be clear, this is for XF 1.5, not 2. So I'd like to be able to set a value of, say, 500 to...

    XF 1.5 Truncate RSS entries via Feeder?

    Is there a way to have the XF Feeder only pull in say one or two paragraphs rather than an entire story from a full RSS feed? I'd like to honor copyrights, etc. Thanks. Ray

    XF 1.5 Getting "invalid sitemap file" and related server errors

    Initially I referenced this thread, thinking it was a permissions issue but our server techs looked at it and determined it's not. We're also getting server errors as shown below: ErrorException: fopen(/home/gators/public_html/swampgas/internal_data/sitemaps/sitemap-1522993044-1.xml): failed to...

    Any interest in integrating XF w/Mastodon? It’s an intriguing open source social network. I’m wondering if there might be interest in some kind of integration with it... or if it even makes sense. Just curious to see what yawl think of the possibilities. Ray

    Looking for someone to create font awesome thread prefixes for us

    Greets, I'm looking for someone to create a few custom thread prefixes for us consisting of font awesome icons. It's very likely we will need the font awesome pro package since it has the sports we need so it would need to work with that somehow (probably needs to be hosted on our server due to...

    Add-on For XF1.5 -- assign style to specific usergroup

    Greets, We would like an add-on that would allow us to assign specific styles to specific usergroups automatically. For instance, we have a usergroup that are paid members so we would like them to be assigned to an ad-free style. I hope this makes sense! If you need clarification, just let me...

    XF 1.2 Feeder works very sporadically, if at all

    Greetings, We recently switched from vB to xF and use the Feeder to pull links to stories from our front page into the forums when they're posted. For whatever reason, on xF the Feeder doesn't work very well, mostly not at all so our writers have to post and sticky URLs to the stories...

    Duplicate Option to unsticky registered feed posts after certain time?

    Greetings, On vB, we're used to it pulling our news feeds from our RSS feed, stickying them, and then setting the stickies to expire after 24 hours. xF feeder doesn't seem to have that last option. Can this be added or is there a way to make this work? Thanks.

    XF 1.2 On importing from vB 3.7, over 10K users disappeared...

    At least according to the user stats - in XF importer, it does say 22k members were imported but when I go into XF admin and users (as well as the forum front page which lists total users), it says there's 10k, about half gone... Any idea what happened here? Thanks, Ray

    We'll be switching to Xenforo from vB very soon... Any recommendations? (High traffic)

    We're excited about it, esp. now that development has restarted on xF. Our website has over 60 million pageviews a year and we're confident xF will handle it with aplomb. Our forums had over two million posts with 17k registered members, but we've heavily pruned them down to about a half a...

    We need someone to help customize/style our XF

    ASAP, preferably this weekend. We'll likely be purchasing an existing template/theme that closely mimics what we're looking for and then have it customized a bit. One of the things we need is our menu from our Wordpress site to somehow be mimicked on the XF side so it's pretty consistent. If...

    Advertisements integration?

    Apologies if this has been discussed here before, I've searched with no luck. Are there any Addons that deal with deploying advertisements through the forums like it used to be done on vB using RedTyger's implementation, etc. where certain user groups didn't get ads, etc? Thanks! Ray
